Species: Elephant Snail
Birthday: Thursday, June 3, 2010
This is a heavy egg looking almost like the shell of a snail.
The elephant snail is a well-known nuisance dreaded by every gardener, originally hailing from the Jungles of Raza. Its appetite is legendary, and one snail alone can destroy a good-sized garden in only a single night. Worse, these creatures usually come in large groups and can easily destroy the harvest of a village in short time, causing famine among the people. Elephant snails usually appear in irregular intervals at the Jungles of Raza, separated by several years. In those years, they eat a swath through the jungle, until they lay their eggs and die off. Careless magi who didn't watch their elephant snails have caused swarms of them in other regions of the world, which caused the Keep to put a ban on breeding them. The Keep has a team of experts ready to move out when hearing about a swarm in an inhabited region and contain the infestation. How these ravenous creatures came into existence is unknown, although some accounts say of a magi long ago who held great respect for both elephants and snails, and attempted to meld the two into one, with a disastrous outcome.
